jGive.Crowd funding and donations for Joomla
Fundraising & Crowd Funding for the future with JGive 1.6
It gives me great pleasure to announce the availability of JGive v.1.6. JGive is one of our most popular extensions & this release seriously packs a PUNCH ! We know this release has taken a little bit more time than initially planned, but we do hope you will find it worth the wait !
Quick glimpse of Features:
Awesome new Pin Layout for Campaigns & a Multipurpose Campaign Display Module
Now you see all the campaigns in a fresh new layout inspired by Kickstarter. It comes with a great side bar with lots of filtering options to help your users find the campaigns they want.
The multipurpose module will let you choose & show Featured Campaigns, Recent Campaigns ,Campaigns expiring soon & Completed Campaigns on any page you want in a slick display. The best use of the module is to make copies of it & set them on different modes to make the Home page of your Funding section.
New Campaign details view
We have given the campaign details page a full revamp & it now comes with some really attractive design elements & the good looking JUI icons.
Edit campaigns option for Admins
Site admins can now edit all campaigns from the Joomla back-end.
Donation Checkout Improvements
This version adds the much awaited One Page checkout & VAT invoices which have been long asked for by our European clients.
Any kind of e-commerce transaction should be dead easy - then be it checking out from a Shop or making a donation or an investment. The One Page Checkout feature will let your donors do donations much more quickly without having to go through multiple pages of checkout.
Impress your donors/investors by maintaining an awesome campaign image gallery ! Lets you add multiple images against the campaign & show them in a nice gallery layout with light box effects.
Paypal adaptive payments to make Fees much easier !
Paypal Adaptive payments lets us do Split Parallel payments instantly. Which means if the Donor is making a Donation/ Investment of 200$ & the fees owed to the site owner are 20$, then we can make instant payments of 180$ to the campaign owner & 20$ to the Admin for his fee.Note that this feature will only be available for the Paypal payment gateway.
Recurring Donations with Paypal
Another feature that was much awaited is the ability to do recurring donations. We will be implementing this with Paypal to start with & in later versions, depending on demand extend it to other supported payment gateways.
Community Builder Integration
The Community Builder Integration lets you show the user's Campaigns on their own profiles.
Donors & Donations Display Module
Using this module, you can show various types of JGive data on any page you want ! The module has multiple modes as below
- My Donations - Donations of logged in users
- Recent donations on site
- Top donations (maximum amount) against campaign by single donor
- Overall top donors
CB Integration was always planned but EasySocial integration is the surprise extra feature in this release ! The Easy Social Integration integrates pushes for all JGive activities into the EasySocial Stream. Plus campaigns owned by the user are shown on the User's Profile using the My Campaigns Application.
Group Donations Support for JomSocial
One of the most requested features is finally here. Now you can tie in your campaign with your JomSocial groups & also show it on the Group. Now you can start doing Group specific campaigns or investments !
